You seem to have entirely missed the point.Jarimir said:But people do advocate drinking less alcohol and soda and eating less fast foods and sweets. I don't see much of an uproar about it either. And in the cases of these things I can actually see a benefit from people warning others to avoid excess consumption. Some people are very ignorant of the dangers of overconsumption.
So, you want people to be educated but will complain if you are witness to any "education" that you feel you don't need.
"You run the risk of getting fat and dying by eating all those fatty foods"
is different from
"Eating those fatty foods is wrong, you will get fat and die, your are stupid for doing so and I will campaign for the government to forcibly prevent you from doing so."
I'm all for giving people the facts they need to make an informed decision. But that decision is their own, and if they make an informed decision that they want to run the risks of smoking or eating fatty foods, then it's time for you to butt out.
